is to be the recipient of a complimentary benefit at the Theatre to-night, and we hope it will prove substantial as well as complimentary; for, in the few opportunities we have had of seeing the young lady on the stage, we have formed a high estimate of her dramatic accomplishments.
She is, it may be said without exaggeration, a true votary of the profession, for her stage education commenced in her infancy, and her very nature seems to have been imbued with the lessons so long and arduously studied.
We are gratified to record the success which has crowned her efforts, and gladly contribute our words of encomium to cheer her on her path.
The entertainment to-night will commence with a new drama, which is highly spoken of, and which was written for Miss Bateman
, entitled the "Romance of a Poor Young Woman." The beneficiary sustains the character of Nora O'Neill
A favorite comedy, called the "Jacobite; or, Wild Ducks," will conclude the performance.
This will be positively the last night of Miss Bateman
's engagement this season.
